OPERATING EXPERIENCE GUIDES THE DESIGN OF SAN FRANCISCO'S NEW SOLIDS HANDLING FACILITY
Abstract:Lessons learned from operating San Francisco's “new ”Oceanside WPCP, in service since 1993, were applied to the design of a new solids handling facility for the City's Southeast WPCP. Working closely with Operations and Maintenance in the evaluation of facility performance has provided invaluable information. This paper focuses on three major areas: egg-shaped digester mixing and other configurations, sludge thickening, and ineffective designs to be improved.
